What’s happening with immigration?
A discussion with Alex Gillis

As the country welcomes a new president and the recession takes its toll on the US economy, the future of millions of undocumented immigrants remains unresolved. After the mass demonstrations in 2006, a wave of repression, in the form of ICE raids and deportations, and near criminalization of undocumented labor has devastated the immigrant community. Alex Gillis, general secretary of the Immigrant Workers Union, provides us with an analysis of the immigrant movement as well as perspectives for its future. Come and join us in this important discussion!

Alex is founder and general secretary of Union de Trabajadores Inmigrantes (Immigrant Workers Union), as well as columnist for "La Communidad" newspaper, radio host and community TV producer. As leader of the Immigrant Workers Union, Gillis has become a voice of immigrant worker rights activism in Wisconsin.
